Bird Flu

Recommended Posts

Sadly, according to Sky News, it has been confirmed that the Romanian teasts have proved positive.


However, I think we have to keep in mind that the virus is just as likely to mutate into something harmless to both birds and humans, as it is to mutate into a global killer.

Absolutely Shona. No point in panicking until we really do need to panic. The DEFRA site is excellent and has put everything into perspective - the risk of Avian Flu reaching us is still LOW so we just need to be observant, keep up a good level of hygiene for our chickens and cross our fingers very tightly. We had this panic a few years ago and it didn't reach us so with luck it won't this time either.
